Love the series! Madeilne Bean joins oddball TV show staff and of course comes face to face with murdered. Based in Hollywood but good anyway!
A quick, fun read for fans of cozy mysteries.
Another good Madeline Bean story!
Another excellent novel by Farmer. I love the characters in this series and appreciate their wit & intelligence. This one kept me captivated until the end. A fun read.
Jerrilyn Farmer's Madeline Bean series is a breath of fresh air. Although Mad Bean and her friends are foodies (she runs a catering business in Hollywood), they aren't snobs and don't overdo the food stuff so much that it makes me feel bad (as some other authors do). The mysteries are fun, fresh, and enjoyable to read. This one is as good the others.
L A has a wonderful cast of characters to choose from. Jerrilyn Farmer is a great story teller.
I have found a new mystery writer. She is great. The story kept moving at a good pace.
I enjoyed this book a lot! It is part of a series, but I hadn't read the previous books and had no problems enjoying this.
Very good book, very good series.

"People die every second of the day ... that's part of life. But how many times in the history of the world do we have a chance to create a game show as perfect as Food Freak?" â So speaks TV producer Artie Herman, as murder meets Hollywood when adorably hip caterer Madeline Bean joins the oddball staff of TV's hottest new culinary series. Bean, her event-planning business in a lull, gets a lucky break, filling in as a writer for a hot-hot-hot game show featuring a dishy celebrity chef and cookoff competitions with teams of amateurs. However, the show's on the brink of disaster, with the head writer missing and staffers quitting or disappearing weekly... until a secret room, a priceless packet of Kool-Aid, and a bubbling Cajun gumbo from hell bring Maddie face-to-face with a murderer.
Good book. When you put delicious food, handsome men and beautiful women together with murder and mystery, you've got to have a winner on your hands.
